When it comes to style, Nicole Richie can do no wrong.
As the savvy multi-tasking mother of Harlow and Sparrow, wife to Joel Madden and full-time fashion icon, Richie has impressively built an empire surrounding her incredible fashion sense alone.
She helms not only her popular Winter Kate clothing line and affordably-priced QVC clothing line, but also spearheads her successful House of Harlow jewelry collection, which just so happened to expand to include clothing this season, as well.
So it goes without saying that Richie endlessly inspires all of us to dress a bit more purposefully and embrace our personal styles, no matter the occasion.
From head-turning street chic moments and mesmerizing vacation ensembles to red carpet formalwear and more, the star flawlessly pulls off a range of cool looks that complement her boho chic personality, petite body shape and enviable lifestyle perfectly.
Need some fashion advice? Nicole's your girl.
In a recent interview with Who What Wear, the 31-year-old star was asked what the one fail-proof item a girl should wear on a date. Her answer? A black mini dress.
But of course! A LBD is flattering and subtly sexy, allowing for just enough intrigue and sophistication during the courtship process.
Best of all, a sleek shift can be dressed up or down with the right accessories, and keeps the focus on your captivating personality.
